Social Science Research-to-Applications (R2X) Coordinator
Dr. Castle Williamsberg is a contractor supporting Dr. Gina Eosco and the WPO Social Science Program as the Social Science R2X Coordinator. Prior to joining WPO in 2020, Castle was a research assistant and Co-PI in the Department of Geography at the University of Georgia, where he conducted research-to-applications (R2X) social science research related to weather risk and visual communication.
Using his personal experiences with the NOAA grant process and his knowledge of NOAA transition plans as an academic researcher, Castle brings a wealth of knowledge, excitement, and enthusiasm to the R2X process, and more importantly, aims to improve this process for principal investigators that wish to translate and transition social science research into various NOAA applications.
